Accommodation is sought by a family newly arrived in the Parish, from Perth: we are a family of 10, 2 adults and 8 children seeking rental accommodation.  Our preference is for a long term, 4 bedroom home around $400 per week, as close to the parish as possible (ideally between Caulfield and Dandenong South).  We are happy to consider any possibilities though including short term, three bedrooms, or other locations.
